This is the 1st of the In Death series. For those who don't know, J.D. Robb is Nora Robert's alter ego. I'm not a big fan of Nora Roberts, although I do read her work occasionally. I will say that she writes in a very different style as J.D. Robb. I really enjoyed this book. It is not for the squeamish of faint of heart....the crime in the book is very brutal and graphic and extremely sexual in nature. I like the fact that while it is set in the future, the settings and devices used are actually somewhat plausible. It's a fascinating premise with a solid crime/mystery. I definitely plan on reading more of this series.

Nora Roberts writes a truckload of books, but I don't care for them. When she puts on her JD Robb hat, I think she sticks to plot development and her characters.
That's why I proudly own every one of JD Robb's books about a butt kicking, smart, survivor, a murder detective named Lieutenant Dallas. The support characters are also developed in later books.
Recently I went back and started with this one, the first book about Dallas, then spent a couple of weeks reading all of the rest of them in order.
I read a lot, and require that the author not stray on tangents, and keep the story interesting and not too predictable - that's what JD Robb does and I recommend her books for those readers who like some detective and total fantasy about a perfect man.

This is the very first "In Death" book in the series and I enjoyed seeing how Roarke and Dallas dealt together the first time they met. It's no wonder this falls under the heading of romantic suspense! The other books, while they've got some definite sex scenes and romance to them, seem to deal more with the mystery than with the relationships; this book focused pretty heavily on the relationship between them.

After 20+ books over 10+ years, I decided it was high time to go back to where it all began -- NAKED IN DEATH.

Here, author J.D. Robb (aka best-selling author Nora Roberts) introduces us to NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas, a force in her own right, and one of the trickiest cases yet. The granddaughter of a Senator has been brutally murdered, and the perpetrator promises that five more bodies are to follow. As Eve races against the clock to save more women from dying, she also must contend with her own feelings for Roarke, a self-made billionaire who early on is a suspect in the murders.

If you haven't read any of the "...IN DEATH" books, I highly recommend them to anyone who enjoys romantic suspense. The mystery and the romance are evenly balanced, Eve and Roarke are definitely intriguing characters, and the story just never gets old.

Going back to this first story in the series after having been a fan so long, I was grateful to be reminded of the meaning behind the gray button, how Galahad came into the picture, and how Somerset's attitude has been the same from the beginning.

NAKED IN DEATH is a winner, and you'll be happy to know that when you finish reading it, there are 24 more stories already published in the series. Happy Reading!!

Part romance, part police procedural, the In Death series is set in a non-idealized near future New York City. Naked in Death is first in the series and sets up the series nicely.

This book introduces Roarke and Eve, the beginning of their romance and sets a solid stage of a series of books about a futuristic cop and her not so legal lover. I have read other books in this series but after reading the first one, I am going to read the series in order. Very Enjoyable.

As a long time Nora Roberts fan, I was eager to start on this series written under the pseudonym J.D Robb. Fortunately I was not disappointed.

Eve Dallas in a Lieutenant of the New York Police Department in the year 2058. She is currently investigating the brutal murder of a prostitute. On her long list of suspects is Roarke, a multi-billionaire charmer. As Eve finds herself emotionally involved with Roarke, even to the point of trusting him, the pressure is on for her to find the real killer.

The suspense and mystery are unquestionably entertaining. The romance is hot and sweet. The balance between the two is flawless, a tribute to Robb's impeccable writing style. The tone of the whole book makes it flow easily and quickly.

To me the series looks very promising. I would recommend this book to fans of mystery, suspense, and romance.

It's always exciting to find a book that you can fall in love with the characters. I started reading this "in Death" series at book 16, not realizing it was a series. Well, I finally decided to start from the beginning. J.D. Robb does not disappoint. I enjoy Lt. Eve Dallas and Roarke just as much as I did in the newer books...plus i found out some interesting details that I did not know before, like how she acquires Galahad her cat, and how he came upon his name. Just little things that bring you closer to the characters and brings more enjoyment while reading the book.

The first in a series of futuristi romane thrillers by Nora Roberts writing as JD Robb. This book contains the well thought out story, imaginative conceptualization of a not so distant future and the same romantic, beautiful and yet flawed characters one would see in other books by Roberts. This marks the introduction of Eve Dallas, our hero. She is smart, cares deeply about the welfare of others and is haunted by a damaged childhood. She meets Roarke - a future "Mr. Big" type who falls for her despite the fact that she is investigating him for murder. As the line goes "it's the beginning of a beautiful friendship."

In the beginning... Eve met Roarke.

This is my FIRST Nora Roberts/JD Robb book! I finally broke down and got Naked in Death on audio from the library. I am so glad that I did. While I didn't think I would enjoy a Futuristic Romantic Suspense, I did. The future that JD Robb made is quite creative and was very entertained. Let me just say that the reader is THE BEST reader I have ever heard on audio. Roarke's Irish voice is amazing and she brings life to all the characters. I don't know if I would have liked this book as much if had I read it. I am already listening to Glory in Death and got Immortal in Death from the library, I want to find out what happens to Eve and Roarke.

An excellent read! The Eve Dallas story and her backstory is fascinating. This book is about how she met the man who would become her husbaand - Roarke - as a murder suspect, no less! Hell of a way to start a romance!

The plot, as usual with any JD Robb book, was excellent, the timing and pace kept you going and even when you had to leave the book (for such mundane things like work and sleep), you couldn't wait to get back to it.

If ytou are interested in police drama and solving the case but without the extreme forensics brouhaha of a CSI:Wherever type novel, the JD Robb something "in Death is for you!

By the Way... SUMMERSET is a card!

Naked in Death is a fabulous read. It's gritty, full of intrigue, and I was unable to guess the ending...always nice when reading a mystery. I suggest you go get it and read it asap. Eve Dallas is a force to be re-conned with. And Roarke...Roarke is sexy. Haha. He's rather two dimensional until a couple books into the series (this one is the first), but he still adds nice flair. ♥

If you don't care for Nora Roberts BUT love Mystery/Dark Thrillers with a side of romance and a dash of comedy - then I think you'll love J.D. Robb's ... In Death series written by Nora Roberts alter ego.

I won't go into the details of the books but will tell you this: Superb character development, continuity of the story line (which means you really need to read the books in order although they can stand alone) is top notch, the relationships that are webbed and weaved together throughout each page are phenomenal and let's the reader 'really' get to know the characters.

This is the first in the "In Death" series, with Lt. Eve Dallas. In this book you get to know Eve and watch her fall in love with Roarke. I read this book after reading several of the other series, and very much enjoyed it. The action is there, the suspense, and of course the romance between these two very headstrong people.

I was very interested in what all the hub bub was about this series. So I got the MP3 from the library. It is very long. It is also not a book you should listen while you have kids around. It has sex scenes, rape, murder. Of course this is well done, or the sucess of the series would not be continuing to book 30 at this point.

The reader did a great job of reading and doing various voices.

I love powerful Lt. Eve Dallas and how the complex New York City crimes are solved. If you don't wanna bite her husband, don't read these books! Nora Robert's best writing is as JD Robb in this "In Death" series of some 30+ stories to date. I collect all of the JD Robb books, but skip the Roberts, whose stories are not as tight as those about Lt. Eve Dallas - ass kicker! If the future of New York City is like this, I fear these futuristic killers who are sneaky and complex.

A spectacular beginning to a blockbuster series. It's 2058 and, though prostitution is now legal and regulated, it can still be a dangerous profession. Eve Dallas, a lieutenant in the modern version of the NYPD, gets the job of finding out who killed a very beautiful, very expensive prostitute in her own luxurious apartment. The woman is a member of a very wealthy influential family. The prime suspect seems to be the richest man in the world. He also happens to be handsome, sexy, determined and very interested in the lieutenant, a woman who has a past with a lot of holes in it that has left her with, among other things, nightmares and a reluctance to form relationships. The pacing is good, the characters are pretty well rounded, the dialogue is engaging and the book is hard to put down. If you're into murder mysteries give it a try. You'll probably like it. I certainly did. And do. I tend to read my way from beginning to end of the series about once a year.

when i first started to read this book, i didn't think i was going to be into it because it takes place in the year 2058 and everything is run by technology. i'm glad i continued to read it, it turned out as good as every one says it is. eve is called to a scene of a murder. she discovers a naked and very dead legal prostitute. by the time the third murder victim is found, eve found herself falling for the lead suspect, roarke. eve tried everything she could to keep away from him, but her feelings were to strong.
this is a wonderful novel about love, murder, and trust. it is recommended for anyone who likes nora roberts.

After 20+ books over 10+ years, I decided it was high time to go back to where it all began -- NAKED IN DEATH.

Here, author J.D. Robb (aka best-selling author Nora Roberts) introduces us to NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas, a force in her own right, and one of the trickiest cases yet. The granddaughter of a Senator has been brutally murdered, and the perpetrator promises that five more bodies are to follow. As Eve races against the clock to save more women from dying, she also must contend with her own feelings for Roarke, a self-made billionaire who early on is a suspect in the murders.

If you haven't read any of the "...IN DEATH" books, I highly recommend them to anyone who enjoys romantic suspense. The mystery and the romance are evenly balanced, Eve and Roarke are definitely intriguing characters, and the story just never gets old.

Going back to this first story in the series after having been a fan so long, I was grateful to be reminded of the meaning behind the gray button, how Galahad came into the picture, and how Somerset's attitude has been the same from the beginning.

NAKED IN DEATH is a winner, and you'll be happy to know that when you finish reading it, there are 24 more stories already published in the series. Happy Reading!!

A licensed companion has been killed. NYC police lieutenant Eve Dallas is on the case. Pressure to solve it is coming from the grandfather of the victim, who happens to be a U.S. Senator. The number one suspect of the crime is Irish billionaire Roarke, who Eve is drawn to even though she keeps telling herself not to get involved with him. The murderer has left a note that there will be five more murders. Time is running out.

This is the first book in the Eve Dallas series and it was excellent romantic suspense. The characters are well-drawn and the story has a great plot. It's a great start to this series. My rating: 5 Stars.

I liked the 'near future' aspect of the story, in that it's not so far in the future that you would consider it "science fiction", and the references to futuristic ideas are definitely plausible. Story moves along at a good pace and you don't guess the outcome till the very end.

Beautiful gift copy!
Naked in death starts out a really great series! Nora Roberts writes these under the name of JD ROBB. I did just start this series as I read everything I can get my hands on from Nora. If you are a new reader, you do need to start with this book and work your way through. I didn't start here first and she really builds the characters through each story that if you don't start from the beginning you miss a lot. I went back and am now starting from the beginning. This series is not Nora's romance format. Of course there is romance in there! This series is a mystery style. It takes place in NYC in the year 2058. When people do travel " off planet" and prostitution is legal. Your car drives you and you have " auto chefs " in house, car , even your office. The way ROBB writes about the future this is truly believable. Lt. Eve Dallas is a tough woman. She is strong, independent, and she truly fights and believes in her job as homicide detective. In this book she finds her main suspect a billionaire name Roarke. He is very charming, Irish, has lived a little on the edge, rich, and good-looking! Eve has now found her match. Roarke didn't have the ideal childhood either and they make the most wonderful couple. This is an excellent series, and keeps you entertained and you don't want to put the book down. Robb does a great job in making the who done it a total surprise! I highly recommend this entire series you will truly be delighted It is awesome!!!
